“Kate Torralba…Live” – Cebu, 08 April 2017

someone
once told
me
that there
was nothing
but air
in the
space
between two
hearts…

and it
hurt
and it
stung
and it
all but
broke me.

so how
can one
explain
the verses
the words
the emotions
so keenly
felt
and the
language
and the
eloquence
that came
so freely
stirred
in part
by lyric
by chord
by measure?

and i
wonder
if the
chanteuse
of your
acquaintance
was right
and i
was drunk
besotted
bewitched
by love.
